92. the french 5: autumn // winter

we're back with the fall/winter edition of our french 5 series. we've been sticking to the seasonal 5-piece wardrobe for a full year now, and we love how it's taught us to be more thoughtful about how we shop. by limiting ourselves to only 5 new pieces each season to compliment the basics already in our closets, we've been able to hone concise and harmonious wardrobes full of well-made garments. 

still curious about the concept? check out our post on the basics

here are the pieces we'll be rocking throughout the cold-weather seasons -


fell eco sweater by farmer's market a precious souvenir from my recent trip to iceland, this undyed wool sweater has already become a staple. it's the warmest, coziest piece i own - i wear it at least once a week.
wegner hat by janessa leone i've been wanting one of janessa leone's handmade hats for a while now. this ashy brown number with a black leather band is just perfect.
smoking shoe by nisolo a great alternative to the basic ballet flat, these slipper-shaped leather shoes are incredibly versatile and beautifully made.
the everlane trench it doesn't get more classic than a well-cut trench coat. it takes even the most simple outfit to catherine deneuve-level chic.
sweater dress by make it good it's tough to find a chunky knit sweater dress that's also graceful and drapey. make it good has cracked the code and made a super comfy and stylish piece.

black tank maxi by brass i've had my eye on this dress for quite some time. brass' maxi is great for layering and works well with ankle booties in the fall months. the shape is extremely flattering and the color works with everything in my wardrobe.
okello crewneck sweater by raven +lily this sweater is made from 100% organic cotton grown with no pesticides or chemical fertilizers and made by women in kenya. not only is this piece eco-friendly, it has a beautiful open weave that will make it wearable all year long.
cashmere slouch hat by ash & rose made from recycled cashmere sweaters, this hat is sure to be comfy, stylish and warm all winter long. the charcoal color is lush and the shape of the hat is casual but can be dressy too.
unbalanced length top by gracia the asymmetrical line and large pleats along the waistline of this top make this piece unique. it's professional enough to wear to work but will transition nicely for a night out with friends.
chelsea leather boots by & other stories a twist on the classic chelsea boot style, these shoes have an elastic band that runs from the ankle around the back for a comfortable fit. these are perfect someone like myself who walks everywhere, even in the cooler months.
